Dr Shaheen takes the time to listen. He answers all my questions and shows compassion in every visit. He is thoughtful about my concerns and I always feel like I am a unique patient: not one of many. He has undoubtedly been the most caring involved doctor I have ever seen in my 70 years!

Dr. Shaheen is amazing to say the least. He’s very caring and courteous! He’s even seen me for a unplanned appointment during his lunch break when he doesn’t accept patients. So happy I have him as a cardiologist! The only thing I would say is a con is sometimes I feel rushed and I don’t like that because then I forget to ask questions I have and I don’t like that at all then when I leave I have to call the nurses to get the answers, etc. That’s the only thing I would change. I trust him so much
